Motorola has been promising a tool for developers to unlock the bootloaders on their phones for a long time now. So long in fact, that we have pretty much given up hope of ever seeing another Moto phone like the OG Droid which was the hacker’s paradise. Anyone who was hoping that the new AT&T Atrix HD would have an unlockable bootloader is going to be sadly let down, it’s locked and encrypted like all the other ones, but Moto took to Twitter to say that it might not be locked for long or that they potentially have an option on the way.

This morning, Motorola made the Atrix HD official, a phone that was prematurely outed on their own website last week. As expected, the Atrix HD sports a 4.5″ HD display with ColorBoost technology, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, 1GB RAM, 1780mAh battery, 8GB internal storage, expandable storage up to 32GB, runs Ice Cream Sandwich and AT&T’s LTE all in a slim 8.4mm body.
As we mentioned after first reporting the landing page for it that popped up on Motorola’s site, the Atrix HD is by no means a top tier phone nor do they expect it to be. This is clearly directed at the “price conscious” crowd that still wants a powerful phone. It’s like a regular DROID RAZR, but with an HD screen. The big dog from Motorola is still yet to come.
Atrix HD will be available on July 15 at AT&T for $99 on 2-year contract. (more…)
Sooooo, yeah. Motorola apparently thought it was time to post up the Atrix HD in all its glory on their official website. We are a little confused because we can’t recall seeing an actual announcement for the phone, however, the mobile and full landing pages for it are live right now, if you are interested in checking it out.
According to Motorola’s own site, it is definitely headed to AT&T with an LTE radio inside (logo on front), has a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8MP camera, 1.3MP front camera, 4.5″ HD LCD display with ColorBoost, on-screen navigation keys, 1780mAh battery, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, up to 32GB of external storage, is 8.4mm thick, and runs Ice Cream Sandwich.
The model number is listed as MB886. For those not familiar with Motorola’s model number naming scheme, anything in the 900s has been reserved for their top tier line in the past. That doesn’t necessarily mean that this phone is some slouch, being in the 800s and all.
